Good travel book

by Sharon on Oct 25, 2012

I felt like I was a passenger in the back seat of Mr. Bryson's car...a very good travel book....and I've actually been to many of the same places. He has some wonderful insights into the back highways and byways of America. If you happen to get a copy of the book with the coffee stain on the cover, don't panic (as I did), because that's actually the cover!!!

Enjoyable from cover to cover

by CaraBee on Aug 23, 2008

Like all of Bill Bryson's books Lost Continent is filled with funny and apt commentary. How I wish I could be along for the ride on his forways across the country! I envy his unique descriptive storytelling.
